Wonderful Weekend

Last weekend we opened our house to two very dear friends from Holland. After rather a lot of preparation it was so lovely to see that they loved our house as much as we did.

Friday also happened to be the first game of the World Cup for The Netherlands so we invited a few friends to watch the game...

Saturday saw us heading into the New Forest to find the wonderful Exbury Gardens...such a peaceful, tranquil place. it must take so much work to keep the gardens looking so well kept - we'll certainly be back with a picnic in tow!

Of course any trip out has to be topped off with a glass of something cold in a traditional country pub. We just happened to find the only one with a giant owl and a telephone box in the beer photos of the owl, I was too scared to go near it!!

As you are reading this we shall be travelling to our dream holiday in The Maldives. I've scheduled a few posts for the next two weeks, when usual service will resume. Until then no phones, no internet, no queue at the bar...!
